Infor LN and Infor Warehouse Mobility Provide an Effective, Integrated and Flexible IT System That Meets Today's Needs in a Globalized Market

LISBON, PORTUGAL--(Marketwired - Apr 23, 2013) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, has just announced that Ferpinta - Indústrias de Tubos de Aço de Fernando Pinho Teixeira, S.A., a Portuguese metal fabrication company, has implemented its Infor LN and Infor Warehouse Mobility solutions throughout the group's operations. The aim is to create a unified IT system that is effective and flexible, and efficiently accommodates all the business and production areas, including the financial, analytical and shop-floor divisions.

Ferpinta group has now upgraded its ERP system by adopting Infor LN, whose powerful features and deep functionality offer greater control over the inherent complexities of its global corporate operations. The Infor application will help lead to improved performance, efficiency, and higher productivity. Other goals include providing better customer service while streamlining processes and cutting waste.

In addition, the Ferpinta group has adopted Infor Warehouse Mobility which will help simplify reporting and allow transactions to be completed more quickly. The company will now be able to condense several tasks onto a single screen that is easy to use -- streamlining reporting. In addition, this solution enables the automation of systems so that the information is entered in the ERP system automatically in real time, avoiding manual data input and eliminating possible errors and inaccuracies in inventory reporting.

"With this adoption, we can rely on the rigour and professionalism of Infor to help us provide an effective, quality service," says Nuno Pires, administrator of Ferpinta. "We believe that this important strategic decision will help the group stay on track for growth by supporting its entrepreneurial trend and providing the skills and conditions needed to set us apart from the competition."
